First of all, Village Montana is a group of several buildings & hotels, and we had no clue in which we will be staying until we got there. I think this is also the main reason for the mixed reviews here, as some buildings are more luxurious than others. We ended up in an apartment in Montana Valbel, which is one of the buildings near the main one. We understood that one of the other nearby buildings is mostly occupied by a younger crowd and were thankful for the consideration taken in not putting us there.
The apartment we got was relatively spacious for ski resorts apartments. I had apartments for four in other resorts which were smaller than a show-box. This one wasn't a shoe-box at all. We had two sleeping rooms, a living room, a spacious bathroom and a kitchen. We didn't use the kitchen, so I can't comment on that, but just the fact that they had a stick-blender and a salad spinner says a lot.
The ski room is nice, but I don't think it is heated. It had that system for heating shoes and gloves, but I think it wasn't working. Ski out is easy, right out the ski room; ski in requires a little walking at the end.
The hotel advises you not to park in the street, and recommends using their parking for a daily fee of 15EUR which I find a little expensive. The wellness center is located in the main building, costs extra (9EUR per entry), and is very small though it serves several buildings so book it in advance. If you wish to get a massage, check in advance as the masseuse isn't always there (actually, wasn't there ever when we stayed) and you may get a better deal going to the wellness center at Montana Premier.
The apartments are in the lower section of Val Thorens, which means you need to walk a bit to the get the main area of town were the better restaurants and bars are. It is still within a walking distance, and some may even prefer it as it's quieter this way.
